Many people have speculated that the cutie pie Alia Shawkat is gay. Many sources have claimed that this girl next door is more into women than men. But is it true?
Nobody is 100 percent sure about it. It is easy to make speculations, but when it comes to facts, one can hardly dig them out. But we think people need to get their facts clear before making baseless speculations, because guesses can often be wrong.
There are times when even some hot news published or broadcasted by various media outlets have turned out to be false – all because of half-formed hypothesis and lack of proper evidence. And the same is the case with Alia Shawkat, the 26 year old actress who is rumored to be gay. So how much authentic and believable is this rumor.
The actress, who is well known for her role as Maeby Funke in Fox TV series Arrested Development, appeared as a guest in Comedy Central sitcom, Broad City. In her cameo role, the beauty was seen kissing and making out with the lead character Ilana Wexler played by Ilana Glazer.
In a special episode, Ilana meets Adele (Alia Shawkat) at a party where she fails at working in the coat check with Abbi Abrams (Abbi Jacobson) and the two immediately hit it off. The look ladies, who are much alike, make out in the middle of the restaurant. Gross!!??
Besides her lesbian character in the show, the actress has rarely been involved in any activity which could result in speculations and pointed questions about her being gay.
Her close relationship with her Whip It! co-star Ellen Page also seems to have added fuel to the rumor. The Juno star and Arrested Development fame are the ultimate BFFs and the duo is quite inseparable. Ellen Page and Alia Shawkat are such great friends that they literally do everything together. And Ellen’s Instagram and Twitter are full of Alia’s pictures and praises for her.
And let me tell you one thing, Ellen Page officially announced that she was gay in On February 14, 2014, in a speech at the Human Rights Campaign's "Time to Thrive" conference. So do you think these two ladies might be hooking up with each other or are they just friends?
But the thing is, Ellen being gay does not mean that she and Alia are dating each other. In fact the 28 year old Page is currently romancing her new girlfriend, Samantha Thomas. Ellen and Alia are very close friends and though we have the saying ‘a boy and a girl can never be friends’; two girls can always rock as buddies despite their sexuality, can’t they?
And finally, to make things crystal clear, Alia Shawkat has had boyfriend before. She previously dated not just one but two men, even though the actress is currently single (as per sources). So it would be unfair to judge anyone blindly. Moreover, it’s her life. So even if she is indeed gay, it’s her choice.
